My hibiscus are very leggy. I need to promote leaf growth. I use Miracle Grow every 2-3 weeks in the late spring and summer months. Can you suggest something to get leaf growth?

    It sounds like they are not getting enough light or perhaps have not been pruned lately. They are usually pruned in spring, though light trimming for indoor plants can be done anytime, if needed.
